Street Art #202

I didn’t manage to spot much on a recent trip to Bath, but I did quite like the wee rat.  It really is tiny, and overhead on the side of a bridge over the river, so it was a total bugger to get a photo of!

Street Art #201

A little something I picked up in York in late December.

Street Art #200

If a friend comes home from their holiday and says they saw some street art and thought of me then I’m a happy woman!  The lovely Ana (who owns this gorgeous beast) went to Dublin for a day in early January and brought me some street art for my collection.

Wednesday WIP

I’m still decluttering my studio, which is taking forever: I have so much stuff in there.  Yesterday I rediscovered a pack of replica vintage garden ephemera that I bought at the Chelsea Flower Show many years ago.  I’ve used a few bits from it, but the rest had been chucked in a drawer and forgotten about.  I’ve chosen a few cards with which to decorate my studio, and today I turned the remaining bits and bobs into a notebook.

Let’s just take a moment to appreciate how useful a curved needle can be, especially when one is binding envelopes into a book.

I ended up using the biggest garden leaflet to make the cover (which is lined with card from some posh shirt packaging that came into my possession), the leftover garden bits and some repurposed paper (brown paper that had been used as packaging in something I received in the post, and some squared paper from an old maths exercise book) became the pages.  I found some old envelopes lurking in another drawer so those got thrown in too.  It’s turned out beautifully!
